and what it means to be a texan. an encore presentation of that interview now on booktv. c-span: molly ivins, where did you get the title, "you got to dance with them what brung you"? >> guest: it's one of the oldest sayings in politics, 'you got to dance with them what brung ya.' and what it means is that when you get to pu--when you get to office, when you get to public office, you vote with the folks who put you there. and that used to mean your constituents, the people who voted for you. but more and more what it means is you vote with the special interests who put up the money to get you to public office. and part of what this book is about is the corruption of the american political system by money. it's not as though american politics had ever been pristine and pure. of course not. money has always been there. but money nowadays is the dominant factor by such an enormous margin that i think it is making not just a qualitative but a--not just a quantitative but a qualitative difference in american politics. c-span: let me ask you about this cover right here. >> guest: mm. c-span:
